Ah, but the moustach's relationship to the prow of the Dornier and the way the cheeks push up against the canopy "eyes" is, though. I'm sure the creature smokes a pipe when on dry land and has a "No circulars" sign on its letter box to deter junk mail. Most of all, it cannot bear being asked if it is a relative of Billy the Fish, barking back in a ferocious gurgle, "Whales are cetatean mammals, you nincompoop!"
It might also reply to you, "They are not teeth they are baleen you, you ...." as it splutters mercifully into silent apoplexy.

Colt & Crusader, red : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.

The An-2 Colt has been subject to various experiments, like the following :







so here is another one (with Crusader wings, as well as Harrier T4, to keep it a biplane, of course)

Great fun. Why not do away with the tailplane altogether?

I think the Javelin and MiG-21 featured such a Delta + Tail layout, this seems very possible. ;)

Looks perfectly logical to me, compared to those earlier versions.   ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I DO hope the upper wing has variable incidence!  ;D ;)

Variable incidence and reversible stagger would be good.  :wacko: ;D

wah !
I didn't think of reversible stagger, but variable incidence would involve both planes of course  ;)
